Bill started working under his father William Thomas in 1977. He began as a truck driver, delivering products from our bulk site in Clanton, Al. After a few years of driving for the company Bill moved into the office and become an inside salesmen. As Bill began to learn more about the Oil/Fuel business, he was given more responsibility and for the past 15 yrs has been the President of Thomas Oil co.
When Bill is not at the office, you might find him at home working in his wood shop. He is often “crafting” something for a friend or a church member. If he’s not in his workshop he is probably out riding his tractor.
Howard began his work at Thomas Oil in 1981 after graduating from the University of Montevallo with a bachelor of business administration degree.He, like Bill, also drove a truck, and in addition he maintained the pumps, lifts, and compressors at their retail outlets.Before their dad retired, Howard moved into the office to learn the logistics of the operations.He is now the main dispatcher for Thomas Oil. He coordinates the trucks and deliveries on a day to day basis.He is also the Vice-President of Thomas Oil Co.There are not many companies that can say the owners are as “hands-on” as Bill and Howard are. Their added efforts produce a smooth running company.When Howard is not at the office, you can find him on Lake Mitchell spending quality time with his family.
